With a melting pot of cultural influence, award-winning restaurants, killer sports teams and incredible local entertainment, it's no surprise that the Toronto real estate market is on fire right now. So $750,000 for a house downtown sounds pretty decent, right?
Well, when they say something's too good to be true, it probably is.
This two-bedroom rowhouse is on the market for an asking price of just under $750,000 in the coveted neighbourhood of Trinity-Bellwoods, where the housing average is more than $1 million. It's a stone's throw from Trinity Bellwoods Park and many great amenities, and just a block away from trendy Queen Street West.
Sounds great, right? The listing's pictures speak for themselves. Outside, the one-bathroom house seems pretty decent. It's quaint - although small - and painted red.
But the inside? Well, you'd be forgiven for thinking the Saw movies were filmed here.
The walls in this two-bedroom house are covered in mold, the floors are stripped bare and the rest of the house is covered in a thick layer of, well, we'd rather not know.
According to the realtor, “this 2 Storey Home Just Needs Tlc, Renovations And Remodeling To Become Your Dream Home!” There's tender love and care, and then there's needing a crime scene cleanup crew and a bulldozer.
Yeah, it's not for everyone.
